KNOXVILLE (AP) — University of Tennessee system trustees have approved tuition increases that raise annual student costs by $774, or 12 percent, at the flagship campus in Knoxville; by $508, or 10 percent at the Martin campus; and by $488, or 10 percent in Chattanooga.
The tuition increase for the budget year that starts July 1 generates about $53 million and helps support a $1.86 billion budget that spends about $52 million, or 3 percent, less than this year.
The budget, approved without dissent on a voice vote, includes $38 million to increase salaries by up to 5 percent.
